      Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

      So I died my hair on Sunday October 5 and the color turned out amazing! It was perfect and everyone loved it, including myself. Then about 3 days later the color started to fade! I was so disappointed! I had medium blonde hair at my roots and blonde ombre ends. I got the perfect overall coverage by starting at my ends then going to the roots and eventually saturating my head with the dye. I went for 6 1/2.3 Golden brown. It was perfect! And now its a lighter brown and looks terrible. I'm so upset.

      Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

      Dying my hair is something that I rarely do and figured that an oil based dye would work well on my natural (African American )hair. After one application I have experienced breakage around my edges. Never experienced this before. This will be my first and last time using this product.

            Love the shine and color but fades within days. Given, I do have oily hair and have to wash daily, but it was a matter of 2-3 days before I could see the fade.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

              Starting with the design of the bottle. It was so bulky that shaking the product was difficult. Additionaly, due to the bottle design I found that I kept dropping when applying the color. When mixing the the cream developer with the toner, both of them were so runny that I spilled them before getting the tubes over the application bottle.

              I have been coloring my own hair for over 30 years, and this is the first time I have used such a horrible product. The color is neon and unnatural in results. I always begin with my bang area because that is my greyest area. Never, ever, have I had a hair color not grab in the area of initial application. Additionally, there are several other areas where the color failed to grab.

              I spent a lot of time cleaning dripped product from my hair that fell onto the cabinet top and carpet.

                It is easy to mix but have to use the entire amount at once because the large size tube with small content amount does not allow to take out portion of it.

                Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

                I've had gray since 18 (I'm 47) so have colored at home for a long time. I LOVE the new color Dark Golden Mahogany. I was mixing my own to that shade by using the Medium Golden Mahogany and adding dark brown. My gray roots come in FAST- I touch up roots every 2 wks and do a full head every 8 wks. I have worried about using harsh chems. for so long and now I love that this product helps relieve some of that concern. Only negatives -the over sized bulb shaped bottle is hard to hold onto and the tube that holds the developer is odd. I like to use half the product every 2 wks and the developer tube is stiff and opaque, making it hard to see how much is left in the tube.

                  This product is great for being gentle but does not have good grey coverage.
